Outside Inn

Went to Nevada City yesterday to play a show with my new band Billy Cramer and Share the Land. Tony and I stayed at the Outside Inn, a cool themed-room motel in town.

Thinking we might go skiing from there, I brought lights and camera. The snow fell throughout the night, though, and made it too crappy out to drive further up the mountain. So I staged yet another Tony photo.

Here's a timeline of setting up:

Kmart and the cart(s)

Again, to Reno and Sugar Bowl to ski. I brought lights and we explored a closed-down Kmart for a possible shoot setting. 

I liked the weird shopping-cart drama here.. in suburban Reno why do people push shopping carts into a loading dock? Can't be the Oakland can man zombie recyclers..

We had just stopped for gas at a nearby 7-11 and I bought a blue (raspberry?) Slurpee to use as a prop. It was way-weird for 10am, but Tony actually drank it.

here's a list of ingredients, per

Corn Syrup High Fructose
Citric Acid
Flavor(s) Natural & Artificial
Quillaia Extract
Yucca Extract
Sodium Benzoate ( To protect taste )
 Blue 1

 Who doesn't need a little Blue 1 in their morning?
